My Mission:
​I am dedicated to improving the outcomes of my client advocees before, during, and after their stays in hospitals for surgery or treatment by assisting them as their advocate. I can help them prepare for hospitalization, provide critical oversight during hospitalization, and assist with making informed choices in medical decisions. By providing a new level of patient directed advocacy, I help patients to better exercise their own autonomy throughout their journey through illness.
I am Gary M. Votour and I am a Health Care Advocate. I provide support to patients and their families before, during and following their admission to hospitals​ in the Columbia, SC area. I am also available for consultation by phone and email.
I am currently finalizing my first book,
 Lives Lost: The Truth About 
Medicaid Non-expansion.
